Rare: Non-Competitive Coins + Scarce high/highest Grade

Category:  World Coins
Owner:  gdk100

Set Description
This set is to highlight the coins that are "Special to me" or I consider that they "STAND ALONE". NEW: I have a number of TOP POP coins in my sets that are not listed here as they are not stand alone. In addition, the set contains high grade coins that I can not enter in competition.

UPDATE Dec 2020 (Dec 2019): I now have 112 (+3) Sets; 35 (+1) will receive awards; and 39 (+4) that are #2. Looks like I am holding my own, reference the competition.

Set Goals
NEW: 21 Apr 2021 Mexico 5 Centavos 1867 Mo - NGC World Coin Price Guide "PLATE COIN"; 7 Apr 2021 Mexico 5 Centavos 1887 Pi R/B "Discovery Coin"; 3 Dec 2020: "A VERY RARE date in this stage of preservation." Mexico 20 Centavos 1908; 2 Nov 2020: Mexico 5 Centavos 1914 - Please see remarks; 19 Sep 2020: 1965 Canada Dollar SBP5; 13 Jul : 1953 Canada Dollar SF; 23 May 1881 Go S Mexico 5 Centavos; 28 Apr : 1901 Azores 5 Reis; 29 Feb 2020: 1915 Oaxaca 2 Peso 6th Bust-2; 1959 Mexico Peso & 1937 Mexico 10 Centavos . SHARED INFORMATION: Mexico Onza 1979/9 with high definition photo of the overdate; Peru 1/2 Dinero 1906/806 confirmed; Mexico Peso 1918/7 is currently not a variety that NGC will certify; HOWEVER, this coin is now in my new set of 1918-19 Mexico Pesos. As of Dec 2019, I had 109 NGC Competitive Sets, of which 34 received awards in 2019 (I had 42 that received awards as the top listing in 2018) and 35 are number 2. The competition has really been tough this past year.

I continue to focus on my 20th Century Mexico, Portugal and Colonies, CAR, Guatemala, Canada and Peru Collections. This effort started about 60 years ago when I traded my U.S. stamp collection for a box of Mexican coins. In addition, I've always liked really "nice" (superb condition) coins. NOTE: THE FOLLOWING COINS, PREVIOUSLY IN THIS SET, WERE SOLD IN THE HERITAGE SIGNATURE & INTERNET AUCTIONS; JANUARY 8, 2018. MEXICO PESO 1949 PRF 66, PORTUGUESE INDIA RUPIA 1881 PRF 64 AND JANUARY 17 MEXICO 1976 10 PESOS DOUBLE STRUCK "WITH ROTATION" PRF 65.
JANUARY 17-18, 2017. CANADA 1911 CENT SPECIMEN MS 64 RB; MEXICO 1974 10 PESOS PR 64. 29 Apr 2021 MEXICO 1976 10 PESO PRF 65 ( SECOND OF THE 2 THAT I OWNED).

This is only my second MS 68 coin (issued for circulation). Coins of this kind before 1960, in the areas that I collect, are RARE in MS68. TOP POP - STAND ALONE. 1 of 1, NONE HIGHER. NGC May 2020
View Coin Extended comment, Please See Remarks. MEXICO - 1823-1909 5C 1887PI R/B NGC MS 67 Purchased in 1996 from Rod Bates who noted the over assayer. I really had to work with NGC to Certify the coin as R/B (C=1). A note with my label says that they do not recognize this variety and I can not add the coin to my registered set as a variety. The coin is in my registered set as a 1887 Pi R (C=14 1/8 -1).

In addition, a few years ago a small lot (3-5) coins of the 87 Pi R in high grade came up for auction. I suspect that they may have all been from this die. The census has been increasing recently, note the high concentration as all 14 are MS 66 to MS 68.
View Coin TOP POP !!!!! MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 5C 1914Mo BRONZE NGC MS 67 BN TOP POP, 1 OF 1 - Red through Brown.
A Beautiful Pearlescent Chocolate Brown.

View Coin Interesting coin, please see remarks. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 10C 1906M NGC MS 66 Obvious 1906/6 as noted in Amaya and verified by a number of my fellow collectors. NGC did not bother to certify; although, they did take the $15. MAYBE THE FINEST KNOWN.....
View Coin VERY ELUSIVE COIN. This coin replaced a harshly cleaned Fine in my collection. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 10C 1907/6M NGC MS 65 1 of 3; 2 higher. NGC Mar 2019.
View Coin Please see remarks. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 10C 1937M NGC MS 66 1 of 3, none higher: since a "+" is a scarce designation, I believe that this coin is a STAND ALONE TOP POP.
EX: PCGS MS 66+. NGC Dec 2019.
View Coin Please see remarks! MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 20C 1908M NGC MS 64 Reference Stack's & Bowers Auction Oct 2020; "A VERY RARE date in this state of preservation".

View Coin Stands Alone. Really nice Coin!!!!! MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 20C 1935Mo BRONZE NGC MS 66 RB 1 of 1 in RB; none higher. NGC 01/2019.
View Coin This has to be a very scarce over date!!!!! MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 50C 1913/07M NGC MS 62 TOTAL CENSUS!!!!! The only example of this over-date certified as of Aug 2017.
View Coin Purchased this coin about 30 years ago, long before the over-date was recognized. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 50C 1918/7M SMALL SIZE NGC MS 66 1 of 1; nothing close: only UNC graded - NGC 11/2012
View Coin MY highest graded Horse Peso. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE PESO 1912 NGC MS 66 1 of 3, none higher. NGC Nov 2015.
View Coin Please see remarks here and in "Set Goals". MEXICO - 1823-1909 PESO 1918/7M NGC AU Details Seller said "Unique". This is not correct; however, it is the First to be slabbed by NGC. I have another in a NGC holder, an AU 58, (not identified as an overdate) and I know of a few more.
View Coin This coin was so neat and fully struck that I paid $300 for it nearly 30 years ago. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE PESO 1921M NGC MS 67 1 of 1; none higher. NGC Nov 2015.
Exceptional coin, lustrous and fully stuck. I paid $200.00 for this coin about 30 years ago.
View Coin At the time I purchased this coin it was a stand alone by 2 grades. I may have also confused this coin with my 1923 which is also a 67. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE PESO 1924M NGC MS 67 1 of 1; next highest is MS 65: 31 graded by NGC. 11/2012
View Coin Stand Alone!!!!! MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE PESO 1959Mo NGC MS 67 TOP POP 1 of 1 None Higher! NGC Sep 2019. Nice light Reddish Gold toning.
View Coin Please see remarks! 1 Onza 1979/9Mo Mexico Silver OBVERSE LAMINATION Pan between ""U"" & ""N"" NGC MINT ERROR MS 64 This is a fairly scarce variety. I can not include this in my registered set because it is certified as an "Error Coin". As such I feel that it is one of a kind.
View Coin The only RB in the NGC Census. There are not any Reds. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 1C 1915 OAXACA RECTANGLE NGC MS 64 RB
View Coin Another Stand Alone! MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 2P 1915 OAXACA 6TH BUST NGC MS 64 1 of 1, none higher. NGC Jun 2019. GB367; OAX107; R2
View Coin Next Highest is a MS 63. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 2P 1915 OAXACA 6TH BUST - "2" NGC MS 65 OAX 109

1 of 1 as designated 6th Bust "2", I believe I found a similar coin just designated as a 6th Bust in the NGC Census.
Looks like this general type is really scarce above MS63. NGC Feb 2020.

EX: PCGS MS 63, I read the coin (through the dirt) as possibly being better than a 63. Thank You NCS for confirming my read.
View Coin A really flashy coin! Please see owner comments and the variety in the next slot. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 5P 1915 TM OAXACA - SILVER 2 BELOW P NGC MS 66 1 of 1, none higher. Top pop and really nice brilliant white mirror like surfaces as I remember the coin. It has been buried in the bank box for years. Total NGC pop of "2 over P" = 26 as of 29 Jun 2017.
View Coin Please see my owner comments. A scarce to rare variety. MEXICO - 1905 TO DATE 5P 1915 TM OAXACA - SILVER 2 BELOW A NGC MS 64 Very scarce variety. The only coin in the NGC Census as of 20 Jul 2017. Possibly the top grade known and it is the only coin labeled as a "2 over A" (OAX 119). All of the other coins of this type that I could find were "2 over P" (OAX 120). I had a friend search auction records and all he found was one listing for a coin in AU 55. Please see my sister coin, immediately above, It is a "2 over P" and a STAND ALONE TOP POP.
View Coin Only coin in NGC Census. PERU - DECIMAL 1/2D 1898/7 VN NGC MS 66 Census of ONE!!!!! NGC Jun 2018.

View Coin Another "stand alone" PORTUGAL 1601-1847 60R (1816-26) JOAO VI NGC MS 66 1 of 3, none higher. NGC Apr 2021.
View Coin This is a rather Scarce Portuguese coin. Please see my remarks. PORTUGAL 1836 TO DATE 100R 1866 NGC AU 53 This date appears to be very scare certified. It is the only coin in the NGC census and my friend could only find one other coin in the auction records. That coin was a very nice looking toned mint state. This date has the highest catalogue value for KM #510. In addition, note the point value.
